‘Spectre’ Assistant Director Injured During Filming Sues for $3.5 Million

‘Spectre’ Assistant Director Injured During Filming Sues for $3.5 Million
An assistant director on “Spectre” is suing for £2.5 million ($3.5 million) in compensation for serious injuries he suffered while making the James Bond film.

Terry Madden, 66, was second unit assistant director on “Spectre,” working for B24 and Eon Productions. During filming of an action sequence in Austria in 2015, Madden’s legs were crushed after a vehicle spun out of control and left him pinned against a camera rostrum. He had to be airlifted to a hospital.

Madden, whose extensive credits include “V for Vendetta,” and “World War Z,” has undergone a series of operations since. Eon Productions’ insurers have accepted liability, but Madden, who has worked on numerous Bond films, says he has not received any money from the insurers. He is suing to cover his medical costs and lost earnings, Madden’s legal representatives said.

“I felt privileged and proud to work and be part of an active, exciting, but hard-working industry,

Film Review: ‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’

Film Review: ‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’
“Why are you doing this?” cries Kinsey (Bailee Madison), a teen-delinquent Wednesday Addams in an off-the-shoulder Ramones T-shirt, as she stares into the face of the killer she has just unmasked. The assailant, who appears to be not much older than Kinsey, looks right back at her and summons her best sickie-harpy grin as she says, “Why not?”

As motivations for homicidal maniacs go, this one carries a bit of Brando (“Whaddya got?”) spiced with a pinch of Manson. And the audience for “The Strangers: Prey at Night” may identify with the sentiment. Why go to a hideously obvious slasher movie, with no tricks up its sleeve beyond its use of songs like Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” Kim Wilde’s “Kids in America,” and Air Supply’s “Making Love Out of Nothing at All” to accompany images of operatic slaughter? (At times, the films feels like

Natalie Portman Reprises Queen Amidala, Defends the Prequels in New ‘SNL’ Rap

Natalie Portman hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time in over a decade last night, and she reprised a certain segment that caught ablaze on the internet during her first go-around. Portman made her SNL hosting debut in 2006, at which point she was coming off some strong dramatic turns in films like Garden State and Closer, and she was there promoting a different turn in V for Vendetta. But Portman still had a bit of a “quiet good girl” vibe in the public eye, and she turned that on its head with a fantastic SNL Digital Short …

Supergirl season 3 episode 8 review: Crisis On Earth X Part 1

This year's DC TV crossover begins with Supergirl in Crisis On Earth X Part 1! Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

3.8 Crisis On Earth X Part 1

We were promised a more serialised crossover this year, and Crisis on Earth X Part 1 delivers on that front. In past crossovers, there was a clear 'home court advantage' so to speak. That is to say, while the characters concerned with the main action appeared throughout the crossover, each episode generally took on the characteristics of the show the time slot belonged to. There were also usually side characters who only got to participate when their show's episode brought the action into their orbit, whether physically or otherwise.

If Crisis on Earth X were to follow that model, Barry and Iris' wedding would likely have had to

HBO's Trailer for Kit Harington's Miniseries Gunpowder Tells The Story of Guy Fawkes

HBO has released an intense trailer for their upcoming three-part miniseries called Gunpowder, which tells the story of British activist Guy Fawkes. The series follows Fawkes and his team of provincial English Catholics as they plan to blow up the House of Lords and kill King James I in the early 17th century.

This miniseries looks really good and it has a solid cast that includes Kit Harington, Peter Mullan, Mark Gatiss, Derek Riddell and Liv Tyler.

Even though Guy Fawkes has become the main name associated with the Gunpowder plot, thanks to V for Vendetta, he actually played a minor role in it. The main guy who led the charge was Robert Catesby, and that is who Harington is playing. For some additional information on the Gunpowder treason plot Wikipedia says:

The Gunpowder Plot of 1605, in earlier centuries often called the Gunpowder Treason Plot or the Jesuit Treason, was

Netflix is Developing a Series That Explores What Would Happen if Christ Showed Up in the Modern Day World

Netflix is developing a new series called Messiah, which tells a story of Jesus Christ and what it would be like if he showed up in the modern day world. It's certainly an interesting concept. It will explore how society would react to a person who mysteriously appears in the Middle East claiming to be the Messiah and savior of the world.

The 10-episode series is described as a “suspenseful drama exploring the lines among religion, faith and politics", and this is the synopsis that was released:

Messiah will chronicle the modern world’s reaction to a man who first appears in the Middle East creating a groundswell of followers around him claiming he is the Messiah. Is he sent from God or is he a dangerous fraud bent on dismantling the world’s geopolitical order? In ten hour-long episodes, the story unfolds from multiple points of view, including a young CIA agent,
